Buried treasure box to store me loot!
I made this SKULL BOX to use for a gift, but you could also use it as a jewelry box or treasure chest.

  • How to make a box. Skull Box - Step 1
    Step 1

    Take your unfinished paper mache box, and paint the entire thing black (inside & out). Let it dry.

    Step 2

    Using your box as a template, take your sharpie and outline the shape of the bottom of the box onto your tiger printed felt, so that you have 2 squares. Cut them both out, and make adjustments if needed (for example, cut it more to fit perfectly inside the lid and bottom of the box). Glue to inside top & bottom, and let it dry.

    Step 3

    Take your cardboard skull cutout (mine is from 'Creative Imaginiations' - Skull & Crossbones Collection), and glue it to the outside top of the lid.
    I also glued 4 screw stickers on the 4 corners on the top of the lid.
    Let it dry.

    Step 4

    I put the lid on the box for positioning, and glued a lock sticker to the side of the box. Let it dry. You can seal with varnish if you'd like.
    *I also glued a piece of plain black felt on the bottom.

    Put in your gift or to store your personal items, jewelry, gold coins or loot.

    DONE!

This is really cool and looks like something my son could use to put all his skateboard stuff in.
